Family-friendly hotel in a prime location for dining and entertainment

Guests of Holiday Inn at The Plaza enjoy close access -- a short walk or complimentary shuttle ride -- to the city's premier 15-block dining, shopping, and entertainment district, Country Club Plaza. Culture beckons from around the corner at two outstanding art museums, and the hotel is convenient to myriad attractions and downtown nightlife. Families appreciate the connecting rooms, free dining for children, and extra large pool with a shallow end. Pets are also welcome (fees apply).

Highlights
  • Located near Country Club Plaza, with more than 150 shops and restaurants
  • Kansas City's largest heated outdoor hotel pool
  • Free shuttle to Country Club Plaza and other nearby attractions
  • Free wireless high-speed Internet access throughout
  • Free garage parking
Rooms

Choose from king rooms, suites, or the Executive Club Level. All rooms include a desk with ample workspace, lamp, desk-level electrical outlets, and complimentary Wi-Fi and local telephone calls. For in-room entertainment, enjoy pay-per-view and premium cable movies or the DVD player. Executive Club Level guest quarters are larger, and free morning newspapers are delivered to rooms. Seven of the hotel's 241 rooms accommodate handicapped or physically challenged guests.

Features

The lively Country Club Plaza, with its busy calendar of music and special events and dozens of dining and leisure options, is a major attraction for guests, but the hotel offers distractions of its own, beginning with a super-large heated outdoor pool. Exercise enthusiasts work out on universal, treadmill, stair stepper, and elliptical equipment in the small on-site Health and Fitness Center. For guests with small children or on a longer stay, the Guest Self-Laundry includes a washer and dryer. Internet access is free in public areas.

Better than expected ^.^

We selected the Holiday Inn despite some like warm reviews, but were pleasantly surprised. The location is fantastic, within (hilly) walking distance of the Plaza, Kemoer & Nelson Atkins museums, Westport, and several parks. Staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful. Free parking and WiFi were pluses and our room was quite comfortable - except for a very firm mattress. We had the breakfast buffet which was very good, especially a great assortment of fresh fruit. our only real disappointment was that the pool was outdoors and not yet open for the season.

Helpful staff, great location

The Holiday Inn at the Plaza is perfectly located to enjoy all the great things Kansas City has to offer. My only regret is that we did not have a longer stay. The pool area was right outside our window, and looked luscious. Rain, over which even a fine hotel has no control, kept us from taking advantage of the pool. The staff was helpful and the parking,etc was very convenient.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

There's plenty to do to keep one busy in the Plaza area, from wonderful museums, to great restaurants, to an enchanting stroll among the fountains and flowers of the Plaza. We ventured an easy drive away to the Jazz district where we were captivated by the Monday night free jam session at the Blue Room.
